NYC Anarchist Book Fair 2009 Sex Work and the Media 11 April 2009 Presented by Sarah Jenny, Will Rockwell, Ruthie
Panelists will discuss their experiences creating sex worker-made media, being allies to sex workers utilizing new and print media, and handling the mainstream media such as in the cases of Spitzergate and the NYC Pro-Dommes stings in 2008. Panelists produce an array of media by, for, and/or about sex work and will answer questions such as: What is sex worker made media? What safety precautions can be taken when creating media about/for/by sex workers, legal and otherwise? Panelists will also discuss the intersections of social justice and independent media as specifically relevant to sex workers and their rights, oppressive constructs in/by media and how to challenge them, and the critique of sex worker representations in the mainstream media as well as tactics for culture jamming.
